A lot has happened since yesterday! Mostly I calmed down and instead of nervous got really really excited! The tiles are all on the walls, they’re crazy colorful, and I realized the aesthetic reminds me of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown – my favorite movie of all times!
I had a really nice gallery visit today too. Hugo Perez, one of my favorite Houston artists, whose work I’ve admired for years, came by to pick up a watercolor he bought from the Galveston show. We got to have a really nice visit, and he gave me lots of great input about ways to hang the tiles – and other things as well. I love artists supporting artists, so I’m very excited about this new friendship!
The rest of the day went by in a blur of color, but it was a happy blur. Perhaps there is something magical about these crazy paintings I’ve made. Perhaps they really can help lift people’s moods. They’ve sure lifted mine.
